Cook Mung Dahl. See recipe on this site at https://versatilefoodie.com/indian/cooking-mung-dahl-a-type-of-lentils-from-india/
Step 2
Cut the String Beans into 1/4 inch pieces.
Step 3
Add olive oil to a medium sized sauce pan on medium heat. When oil heats up, add the mustard seeds and urad dahl. Keep stirring.
Step 4
When urad dahl is golden brown and the mustard seeds start crackling frequently, lower the heat. Add the cut beans, salt, turmeric, hing, curry leaves, sambar powder and/or cayenne. Mix well.
Step 5
Add 4 cups of water or enough to immerse the vegetables. Water should be about half an inch or an inch above the ingredients in the pan.
Step 6
Cover the pan, with a little outlet for the steam. Cook for 5 minutes in low to medium heat or until the beans are cooked but firm. Check every 2 minutes. Add the coriander leaves and mix well.
Step 7
Mash the cooked mung dahl lightly, just enough for the dahl to cling together.
Step 8
Add the mashed mung dahl to the veggie mixture in the pan. Mix well.
Step 9
Serve hot.
